    Episodes first season certainly improved as it reached its finale but this second doesn't really take things on any further. The talented cast still provide some laughs but it is never quite funny enough for me to become a fan.

    Already saw season 2 on the BBC. I will watch season 3 and agreed with the general direction of the show. However this show is missing something and I fear it will only get worse. Good acting overall, just a show about an unsuccessful show..Stuck!

    [A] terrific second season of this industry-set sitcom. [17/24 Aug 2012, p.109]

    It has more heart than I first credited it with, and the season-long arc involving Sean and Beverly is both funny and touching.

    Episodes has a sly subversiveness that deepens over time, like mercury poisoning: it's an adult farce that is at once frothy and acerbic.
